Angelina Jolie Claims Brad Pitt Has Paid No Child Support

Angelina Jolie Claims Brad Pitt Has Paid No Child Support

DeJean goes on to state that Jolie would like the court to have Pitt pay her the money she is owed.

In court documents filed as part of the ongoing divorce drama between the former couple, attorneys for the 43-year-old actress alleged Pitt hadn't paid "meaningful" child support since the separation.

Meanwhile, Jolie is also urging the judge to issue a final divorce decree this year to legally restore her single status, reports TMZ.

On Tuesday, Jolie filed papers claiming that Pitt has been holding out on her since their September 2016 split, failing to "regularly" sustain payments for their six children.

"(Pitt) has a statutory duty to pay child support.

One of those new lawyers is Samantha Bley DeJean, and she wrote the two-page brief that she later filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

According to an NBC News report, Jolie will now force Pitt to pay the child support, however, the two-page file does not define what constitutes as "meaningful support".

This claim comes as a shock considering how long and hard the 54-year-old actor has fought for partial custody of his children-in fact, it's the main reason the parents of six have yet to finalize their divorce.

Back in June, the exes made headlines when court docs revealed a judge wanted Brad to spend more time with their six children. "As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation".

Jolie wants the judge in charge of their case to issue formal child support orders retroactively against him.

However, an insider familiar with the situation told TooFab, "Brad always fulfills his commitments".

Both actors are said to be keen to "work out the details of the divorce", but they have been "unable to reach an agreement that they are both happy about".

The divorce became contentious nearly immediately after it was announced in September 2016, when Pitt was first accused of roughly handling one of the children on a private jet.

But a source claims to ET that Jolie's latest move is in retaliation over the actress being ordered by a judge in June to help fix her children's relationship with Pitt.

Reps for Pitt did not immediately return InStyle's request for comment.
